It has come to our attention that there are scammers claiming to be working with Barrett Tax Law, when in fact they do not. If you receive a call from a man named Timothy Rufus, claiming to be working with our firm, or calling from this phone number: (613) 366-5293, please be advised this is a scam. He introduces himself to victims as an advocate for the Canada Revenue Agency (“CRA”) and that he is working with Barrett Tax Law. If you receive a call or message from this man, disconnect immediately and call the authorities.
These tax scams are an ongoing issue and the RCMP has issued multiple warnings to Canadians. These scammers have been impersonating CRA employees and demanding that taxpayers make immediate payments for months; however, it has recently come to our attention that they are claiming to be working for Barrett Tax Law as well.
Furthermore, our firm does not work for or with the CRA. We do not call to collect payments on behalf of the CRA, nor do we ever have warrants for your arrest. If you received a call from a supposed employee of our firm, please do not hesitate to give us a call at 1-877-8-TAX-TAX (829-829) if you would like to confirm if this person in fact works for us.
However, if you are being targeted by a real CRA agent or need tax help, call us to book a consultation with one of our award-winning tax lawyers or fill out the form located to the right of your screen.
